I am so excited. I passed my Exit hesi exam with a score of 1190 (99.7 conversion score). I was so shocked and happy.
What I did was thousands of questions. We have a book that was given to us in the program where we had to do 2 sections every week. I did those questions on study mode first. The read the rationales for the questions I missed and bookmarked them. When I finished the questions, I redid the bookmarked questions. Then I did the same chapter in quiz mode.
I also did this with another book- Saunders Comprehensive review for the NCLEX. I used this to get another viewpoint of questions. I loved this book and feel like it helped alot.
I also downloaded a bunch of free apps on my iphone and did those questions when I was watching tv, feeding my baby, sitting in the car etc...
We also had to do evolve Case studies which helped. I did the comprensive review the night before.
I really think all this paid off and i learned a lot and got into the mode.
I hope this helps!

Hey there, that sounds very encouraging. I took my Hesi exit on Nov. 2nd and failed with an 819. Our program requires the minimum score to be 900. I have been using my Saunders book and the evolve case studies which is only made available for students who fail. I wish they'd made these available for the entire class prior to Hesi exit. I am retaking it this friday (dec. 7) and I am hoping to come out just like you. I have been watching 'The Secret' on youtube and applying that concept to my life. I am praying that it works this time!
